Hot Fudge Covered Strawberry Donut Pudding

Donut bread pudding for breakfast is totally healthy.  Like the healthiest.  No worries.Donut bread pudding on a decorative white plate

When Shelly sent out an email asking a bunch of food bloggers to share a Valentine’s Day recipe all on the same day, I was excited. I like Valentine’s Day! I like recipes! This is perfect for me, I thought.

Then I read the list of email addresses that she sent that little invite out to.

I got scared. There are some amazing bloggers participating in this little V-Day Bake-a-thon.

I asked my husband to help me come up with the best, most fabulously creative, delicious tasting V-Day recipe ever so that I could win.

“What is the prize?” he wanted to know.

Prize? MY PRIDE, for one thing. And for another, there is no prize. The competition only exists in my head. Technically, this was just a little V-Day recipe love fest between bloggers. Friendly, lovey-dovey, all that. In my head, though? VALENTINE’S DAY DEATH MATCH.

Just to be positive that I’d win, I decided to make a Valentine’s Day breakfast recipe instead of a dessert recipe. I was fairly certain that everyone else would enter desserts (fancy, spectacularly decorated desserts) into the fake competition that no one else even knew they were competing in, so if I was the only blogger in the breakfast category, I’d win by default.

I have no problem with winning by default. A win is a win, y’all.

Donut bread pudding should be served at every holiday breakfast

Then I whipped up this Hot Fudge Covered Strawberry Donut Pudding and realized that just because a recipe has donuts in it, that doesn’t necessarily make it a breakfast. I mean, yes, you can snarf this down for breakfast, but a more civilized person would probably call this dessert.

I’m not civilized though, so I win the prize in the Valentine’s Day Bake Off Breakfast category!

So, take THAT, you mean, dirty-fighting food bloggers! I hope you enjoy fighting over first place in the dessert category. Jerks.

And, okay, those other bloggers are actually quite nice, pretty to look at, and really just plain fabulous. You should click around and check out their Valentine’s Day posts, too.

I whipped up this Hot Fudge Covered Strawberry Donut Pudding and realized that just because a recipe has donuts in it, that doesn't necessarily make it a breakfast. I mean, yes, you can snarf this down for breakfast, but a more civilized person would probably call this dessert.

Ingredients

  • 6 glazed donuts
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar optional
  • Hot fudge sauce
  • Strawberry ice cream topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter a deep dish pie plate.
  2. Cut each donut into 8 pieces and place in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, and cream until well combined. If you'd like your bread pudding to be a bit sweeter, mix in the sugar. I preferred it without the sugar, but the kids thought it needed the sugar.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the donut pieces and toss them to thoroughly coat the donuts. Let set for 5 minutes.
  5. Pour the donuts into the prepared pie plate.
  6. Bake for 40 minutes.
  7. Top with warm hot fudge sauce and strawberry ice cream topping.
  8. Serve warm.
